Questions

Robert Moran has this:

Here are the questions Republicans need to ask Democrats and their friends in the media:

1. Was Bill Clinton’s use of the Oklahoma City bombing to attack conservatives and talk radio “politicizing” a tragedy?

2. How about the awful James Byrd ad run by the NAACP against George W. Bush? Was reenacting Mr. Byrd’s 1998 dragging death for the camera a politicization of his murder? Was that fair?

3. Is an ad that says, “So when George W. Bush refused to support hate-crimes legislation it was like my father was killed all over again” politicizing a tragedy?

4. How about using church arsons as a political issue? Is suggesting that “when you don’t vote another church burns” politicizing a human tragedy?
